My story

Born and raised in Switzerland my goal was never to have a “good” job or be “someone”. Since childhood I asked myself “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”. These questions as well as my love for the magical and natural dimensions led me to walk and explore different paths. 

First I learned the basics of advertising, then I studied environmental sciences at the ETH Zurich.

I also explored and I’m still exploring a variety of artistic expressions as illustration, video, photography and writing.

And the trilogy nature, art and being is completed by learning and practising Taoist Arts in Japan and China.

After years of working in various environmental fields, I now combine art, body and nature in a podcast, online courses, texts and illustrations.

The Plumed Serpent is inspired by Quetzalcoatl, a deity in Aztec culture and literature whose name comes from the Nahuatl language and means “Precious serpent” or “Quetzal-feathered Serpent”. It is the creator of the world and humanity. God of learning, science, agriculture, crafts and the arts.

So you find on my website a mixture of learning possibilities and art. And when you subscribe to my site you get a free guided Earth Connection Meditation.

My intention is to reconnect people with nature and their own nature. I offer learning possibilities like online courses and creative inspirations to root deeper in yourself and nature.

My approach is a creative one. I combine somatic practices like breath, movement, stillness and physical contact with artistic expression.

As we are part of nature and the universe we are inseparable to it. For our overall health, being in harmony with the natural flow of energy is key.
